Cambridge City returned from their 600 mile round trip with a well earned three points having overcome not only the opposition, but also a bobbly pitch and gale force wind.
Truro started the better with City forced to play on the break, however Cambridge City used that to their advantage on 12 mins with Josh Dawkin applying the finish to a flowing move. Dawkin went close on 25 mins and Adam Marriott went clean through 5 mins later but in trying a lob, provided the keeper with an easy stop. Truro had plenty of the ball but failed to seriously test Enol Ordonez in the City goal and the half almost ended on a high for City, but Marriott's goal was disallowed.
With the wind at their backs, Truro pressed City in the 2nd half with Will Lawton forced to make two great clearances. However, it was Cambridge City who looked most likely to score with Marriott spinning and shooting only to see his effort defelected wide. Lawton saw a header cleared off the line before City had Ordonez to thank for a fine double stop in injury time to secure the win.
